You probably mean jcr:primaryType. It is the auto-created property
which indicates the primary node type of the current node. Have a look
at the JCR specification (JSR-170), section 6.7 "Node Types".

Folders and files are mapped to nt:folder and nt:file node types,
which are part of the JCR specification (you can also define your own
node types). They can be found in the spec starting at section "nt:hierarchyNode". Any JCR application working with files
should map the content onto these node types, so that's why WebDAV is
doing this.

You can write custom IOHandlers [1] if you want to import different
content structures via WebDAV. They are configured in the file
config.xml [2] (that can be found in the jackrabbit webapp under
